Hi, I’m Alex with Voila!, the employee scheduling and workforce optimization app.

Welcome to another Feature Friday!

As a manager, I’m sure you have to deal with last-minute replacements… okay maybe more often than not. With that being said, it is important to have a specific structure in place to be able to manage your employee attendance.

This brings me to answer the following customer question:

How to add a delay before a replacement request?  

By navigating to the schedule and availability in the settings tab, select Schedule.

From there you will be able to personalize your replacement settings by choosing the allotted time required for a replacement.

In the drop-down menu, you will specify the number of hours or days for the delay.

Additionally, this feature will benefit employers by making their employees more accountable for their own schedules.

And with that, I hope you enjoyed this feature. let us know if you have any questions or suggestions by sending us an email to

As always, thank you for watching, have a great weekend and see you next time!
